8x8 Virtual Office

We were using another VoIP service before and we constantly have to restart meetings due to sound quality. After 2 hours of conferences, the sound would completely go out and you couldn't understand anyone.

After switching over to 8x8, that never happens. 4-5 hour calls are now bearable.

I have not had the experience with other CCTV solutions to be able to adequately answer this question.

Cons

  • I think the voicemail system could use a little work. It is robust but the menus are a bit confusing. It is hard to know if a different recorded message is set to play or not.

  • Verint/Nextiva utilizes a integrator business model and if your integrator is poor to respond to your issues then it can be hard to get the support required on a day to day basis. It would be nice if there was a way to escalate issues above your integrator when response is poor.
  • Sometimes is it is difficult to find all the programming details as they may be in more then one view and if they do not match then you can be left scratching your head as to what might have been missed.
  • An easier way to drill down on technical issues.

Based on their poor customer service and lack of warranty replacement, I would not recommend or use 8x8.

Since we purchase software maintenance the cost of upgrade is greatly reduced. It would be cost prohibitive at this point to switch a worldwide operation to another CCTV platform. We have been happy with the overall performance of Nextiva as a product for many years.

It allows us to preform all the functions we need today and we will be gaining new functions once we upgrade.

The system its self rarely gives me any downtime that is not planned. Now with old encoders in the mix those do occasionally fail and are replaced at failure.

Nextiva uses an integrator business model so if your integrator gives you poor support there is no easy way to escalate above the integrator short of choosing a new integrator.

This was first rate as it allowed hands on training with multiple choice testing and certification upon successful completion.

Alternatives Considered

At that time other vendors did not have a virtual attendant feature, thus 8x8 was leading edge.

I have not used any other CCTV products so I can not make an adequate comparison to other products.

Return on Investment

  • The impact on my business was a positive one. I was trying to operate with 2 cell phones and it just wasn't working. I needed a desk phone and a number that would stay the same for the business. I can also add more lines as we grow and they can be anywhere with an internet connection. As a small business, I work primarily out of my home office and my employees can do the same with this system.

  • Nextiva allows us to provide real-time viewing of multiple locations which reduces the need for actual officers thus saving the company money.
  • Nextiva Gold Medal software service agreement has allowed us to easily move to the next software version while providing a reduced rate of upgrade cost.
  • Nextiva allows us to maintain a good working relationship with local law enforcement by being able to provide actual video evidence of incidents.
